  • 12 oz fresh fettuccine of course, you can use dried, but fresh isn't really that much more expensive
  • 4 oz of smoked salmon diced
  • 2 shallots minced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons dry white wine I always keep a bottle of good quality Vermouth on hand to use in a pinch
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • Fresh dill chopped
  • Salt to taste


  • While the pasta is cooking, saute the shallots in butter over a medium heat, until soft and translucent.
  • Add the Vermouth to the pan and cook a minute or two.
  • Stir in the cream and cook for a few minutes, until it's reduced a bit and a little thicker. Add the smoked salmon.
  • Toss over hot pasta. Add dill and season to taste with salt.
  • Serves 4 as a main dish or 6-8 as an appetizer. It's very rich!
